Microsoft Gold Partner and leading WMS solution provider integrates with SPS’ on-demand supply chain offerings for the 3PL community
Clearwater, Florida and Minneapolis, Minn. October 15, 2012 – Datex, a leading warehouse management system (WMS) provider and Microsoft Gold Partner, and SPS Commerce (NASDAQ: SPSC), a leading provider of on-demand supply chain management solutions, today announced a partnership to deliver integrated solutions for the logistics community. The joint offering teams Datex FootPrint® WMS solution and SPS’ on-demand supply chain solutions to help logistics providers and others to meet diverse customer trading requirements with ease.
“Datex is proud to work with SPS Commerce to bring added value to our supply chain software solutions,” said Michael Armanious, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Datex. “Working with SPS Commerce will allow us to provide solutions more quickly and cost effectively for our clients.”
Datex FootPrint® WMS uses leading edge Microsoft technology to provide a warehouse management system (WMS) with advanced functionality and tremendous flexibility. Rather than rely on static hard coding that is costly to change, Datex uses “workflows”, sets of activities that are joined together and incorporated with logic to form a process. Workflow based systems can provide a strong competitive advantage and save businesses time and money. Third party logistics (3PL) providers often prefer workflow based systems as new customers can be onboarded faster, increasing potential profitability. Datex FootPrint® WMS also includes “drag and drop” customizable reporting, track and trace by Lot, SKU, UPC, vat code or ingredient and aids in FDA CFR 21 Part 11 compliance.
SPS Commerce’s cloud-based supply chain services improve the way suppliers, retailers, distributors and 3PLs build their trading partner relationships and manage and fulfill orders with pre-built integrations using 3,000 order management models across 1,500 retailers, grocers and distributors. Datex and SPS have been recognized by Inbound Logistics and Food Logistics for their leadership in providing solutions to the logistics community.
“SPS Commerce is pleased to team with Datex, a trusted WMS provider for logistics providers and other organizations since 1978,” said David Novak, Executive Vice President of Sales & Business Development at SPS Commerce. “We are seeing firsthand the synergies and value our joint solution brings to the logistics community and look forward to serving the 3PL community together. Together, our integrated solutions deliver the flexibility and scalability needed by today’s logistics providers.”
Consistently recognized for excellence in software solutions for the supply chain industry including the Inbound Logistics Top 100 IT Providers and Food Logistics FL100, Datex utilizes the highly flexible Microsoft .NET platform and powerful Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation to create a variety of flexible supply chain software solutions to meet the changing needs of warehousing and logistics operations.
